How do you think DOTM will do in the 3D/IMAX 3D box-office?
Bigger than Avatar!
I hope moviegoers make it rain, just to prove the naysayers wrong.
10x better than Avatar!
I say it makes 20 times more than Avatar
30X better than Avatar!
At least I'm going to be right.
In that case, I'll go at least $11(thats the price of my 9:00 premiere ticket).
In all seriousness, I'll say 975,000,000
Lucky. My ticket was $14.
I say total 1.2 to 1.3 billion.
I think the issue with overcrowding IMAX theaters with so many big movies (mainly Cars 2, DOTM, and HP for the important time frame) will affect the box office total a bit but DOTM should still do huge business. If the 3D is as good (well and the movie itself too) as they have been saying it is and word of mouth gets around that will help a lot too.
I say highest grossing movie of all time. It will rake in the money just for it's 3D awesome-ness and intense marketting/promotion.
As surprised as I am to say it after the abysmal ROTF: this. Dark of the Moon is going to shock and take the world by storm.
Got my IMAX tickets yesterday, they cost me P450 each (around US$10.40), with free popcorn hehe.
If DOTM and Cars 2 are forced to split the amount of IMAX theaters that DOTM can be shown in it will make less money than ROTF did, just saying, less theaters less money, but more people will see it in the regular movies
Movies seem to be having harder time meeting the projected box office so I don't know if the 4th of July release will help Dark of the Moon break the trend or not. You also have Car 2 which could keep some of the kids market away and given the huge profits of a Pixar film some places with only one 3D screen might give that to Cars instead of Dark of the Moon.
Depending on what Potter mania is like that could dampen the box office take a bit as well.
On the other hand really good 3D could be just what Hollywood needs to help rescue 3D film making. Only about 45% of Green Lantern's opening weekend was from 3D so it seems like people are moving away from paying extra for bad 3D. But if Dark of the Moon can bring back 3D to Avatar or better standards that could just be what it takes to invigorate the public's taste for 3D. Word of mouth would also help boost the box office numbers in that hard second weekend when most movies see a steep drop off in ticket sales.
Tough to predict an exact total, but heck as long as you make more than the production cost and marketing then it's all just profit for the studio after that. Plus it's not like the box office can tell you if a film was good or bad.
I hope its kills the avatar. I still have to get my ticket the nine o clock showing.
Jealous. One of the few downsides of living in new york is the ridiculously high prices on everything.
This but California. My midnight ticket was more than 10.40 and the imax ticket for the daytime showing was 15 bucks. Oh well, it's worth it.
